Pandemic coronavirus has a negative impact on social communication in society. It produces psychological problems and depressions. In time of instability, classical music, like fresh wind, brings back creative mood and inspiration. Gravity of classical music paves the way for a new path of creative development.
Two series of my artworks (on the themes of the 1st piano concerto by F. Schopen and Seasons in Buenos Aires by A.Piazzolla) from the cycle MUSIC reflect my perceptions of classical music.
